When the installer was doing his setup process I noticed that the signal strength was 36 for both satellites. I suggested that this seemed low but he said it was fine. On Thursday we had rain and for awhile the system was unable to locate satellite. It didn't seem to me to be raining all that hard. Is 36 OK or if it were higher such as 45-50 or whatever would there be a better chance of getting the signal in cases such as rain.
Also I can't seem to figure out how to check what the signal strength is myself.
Curious as to why when your watching some high def channels and getting Dolby digital sound I get voices coming from the surround channels. Wouldn't voice generally be confined to the center channel. Notice this on newscasts and some other programming.
Sure do enjoy watching the football and baseball games.

Could these types of things be the result of a lower signal strength. Or would there be some other cause.
